Talks over Bloody Sunday prosecutions
PSNI Chief Constable Matt Baggott and Sir Alasdair Fraser, head of the Public Prosecution Service are to have talks to consider whether any of the Paratroopers who opened fire on Bloody Sunday will face criminal charges.
Any decision is solely a matter for the PPS, acting independently in accordance with the Test for Prosecution, according to a statement from Sir Alasdair's office in Belfast.
It added: "The Director of Public Prosecutions, together with the Chief Constable, will consider the report to determine the nature and extent of any police inquiries and investigations which may be required to enable informed decisions as to prosecution to be taken.
"The undertaking given by the Attorney General in 1999 to witnesses who provided evidence to the inquiry will also require to be considered.
"It is not practical, at this stage, to say when such decisions will be taken other than to indicate that the matter will be considered as expeditiously as possible."
